Poems for Lovers and Sinners

Family Ties

  I see a family with laughter, And
  also sadness within its core
  the ties and shadows I share intermingle
  within the gulf stream of humanity

  Looking on to family roots I see the core
  exploding outward and within...
  this structure that was once a mighty army
  is now disintegrating before my eyes -

  Many times have I tried to enrich
  educate and make erudite's of them
  pleas fall upon deafen ears and closed eyes
  screams and bedlam are thrown back in return

  What the future holds destiny foresees -
  and the Gods will tell the story

  As for the family with laughter and sadness...
  It must survive long after I no longer exist
